8:04 pm
month on december twelfth we will have a people's assembly that will swear me into office. but as he spoke police moved in to break up the demonstration. the rifle shots that rang out dashed any hopes that today's inauguration would mean an end to the months of election unrest. and we want to go now to our correspondent catherine wando in nairobi good evening to you catherine so opposition leader of being a boycott of the rerun and held a rally today the day that the president was being sworn in is he able to put any pressure on the government at this point. he can and he can't of the same time given the fact that now constitutionally and by law
8:05 pm
kenya has a president and a deputy president therefore there's really no space for him in terms if you think about it legally but then when you talk about the crowds or the his the number of his supporters which some people put at two quarters of the population then he could pressure the government into doing something but then this would only be told will only come for over time in the next couple of days we have a lot of people who are supporting him saying that he will be sworn in. which is that and now we're talking about secession if if you know if it goes further than that so these are the topics that he has his announcement has brought up and another issue that is being looked at by most kenyans is proof police brutality now that most things have calmed down pressure is now the opposition is now considering you know placing charges of atrocities on this government given that
8:06 pm

8:07 pm
you know they can live in the democracies that they want so that that's that's basically what the situation is bringing about and what about after the inauguration and what did president kenyatta what did he have to say about overcoming these political divisions well he did give. an olive branch to the opposition saying that he is ready to discuss and ready to incorporate their visions into the government that he will only do that in the capacity as a president so if opposition leader raul loading goes to join the government he will join the government and obviously a lot of capacity and this opposition supporters they don't support this they feel that they usually have to go into another election to get a valid validly elected leader and also a lot of people say that the president didn't do enough to bridge the gap or the correspondent catherine i'm wondering reporting tonight from nairobi can thank you

very much for it was tipped to be the high point of pope francis's visit to me in mar an address in the capital alongside on songs you cheat attention was focused on whether the pope would mention the euro hinge a crisis by name as he has in the past now the term or hinge is usually controversial in me and mar where the majority of the population refers to or hinge or as being garwood regarding them as illegal immigrants from bangladesh. as pope francis arrived in myanmar he carried with him the hopes of millions around the world even allowing for a small stumble as he disembarked this was a chance for the head of the catholic church to go face to face with those accused of ethnically cleansing mean mars minority moves from population nor does the ranger during his meeting with the country's de facto leader and son suchi the pontiff called for peace but he failed to mention the word many wanted to hear

the herbicide damages the environment and could cause cancer for her the c.s.u. minister's yes vote in brussels is a breach of trust just when the s.p.d. and the conservatives were supposed to negotiate a grand coalition when it comes live and often when the chancellor is saying we want to enter open talks and the s.p.d. is moving cautiously towards their front as big as this neve and if it weren't for say our but something else then it's not as and you. would still be ridiculous. for the greens because jan schmidt is no longer viable form after macro simply cannot look away from the fact that mr schmidt has disregarded the government's rules of procedures and behave so scandalously if mr schmidt doesn't resign of his own free will and mackel would be expected to respond accordingly and seat merkel probably will not go that far but she has stressed that such episodes must not be
